"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 26 - Hampton, VA

Old Point Comfort - Anchorage

There’s really not a lot to report on today…except we’re finally back in the Chesapeake...just barely. We’re at an anchorage across Hampton Roads from Norfolk, close to Fort Monroe. We filled our water tanks, got a pump out and took on diesel, then said good-bye to some new friends before we pulled away from AYB. It's only 12 miles from Great Bridge to Norfolk but it can be very slow because of the lock and bridges...this was our sixth trip through this portion of the ICW. We know every turn by heart. Things get a little more interesting when you get close to Norfolk...shipyards, cruise ships, police boats, pleasure boats and military ships everywhere. There’s always a lot of action going on in Norfolk.
